    Outdoor Chalkboard: Get a 4 x 8 plywood sheet and mix a chalkboard-colored outdoor paint with unsanded tile grout: 1. Pour 1 cup of paint into a container. Add 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout. Mix with a paint stirrer, carefully breaking up clumps. Can you not use chalkboard paint outside? Also I love the idea of the chalkboard being outside because chalk dust would be a pain in the house. 2. Apply paint with a roller or a sponge paintbrush to a primed or painted surface. Work in small sections, going over the same spot several times to ensure full, even coverage. Let dry. 3. Smooth area with 150-grit sandpaper, and wipe off dust. 4. To condition: Rub the side of a piece of chalk over entire surface. Wipe away residue with a barely damp sponge.

    What a great idea! I hated having a chalk board inside the house but the kids loved it. I took it away and now I have found an acceptable alternative! :)

My favorite kid/baby rooms are white with pops of color, some vintage stuff, fun art, and a chalkboard wall.

great idea for outside play blackboard - like the stepping stones in front of it - note to self, make it in the shade to prevent it from getting too hot to use in the mid-day sun.
